Cellular barcoding: Insights of Stem Cells

By tagging bone marrow cells of mice with a genetic label, or barcode, researchers were able to track and describe the family tree of individual blood cells as they form in their natural environment.

The scientists discovered that these cells regenerate differently than their counterparts do after a blood cell transplant, according to a study published in Nature and funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health.

New Insight Into How Allergens Induce Asthma Attacks

Researchers from the Institute of Pharmacology and Structural Biology have identified a protein that acts as a sensor detecting allergens in the respiratory tract that are responsible for asthma attacks.

The study, published online March 19 in the journal  Nature Immunology offers hope for breakthroughs in the treatment of inflammatory disease such as asthma .

To Treat Type 2 Diabetes To An Increased Risk For IBD

According to a new research, a linking dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors used to treat type 2 diabetes to an increased risk for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is prompting investigators to urge monitoring of patients for gastrointestinal symptoms and to suggest substituting the drug with a different antidiabetic in patients at risk for the autoimmune condition.

Motor Skills Linked With Reading Skills in Obese Children

Excess body weight has been linked to poor academic performance in children in several previous studies. A new Finnish study now shows that a high body fat percentage is associated with poor reading skills in 6-8-year-old boys. However, these associations are largely explained by poor motor skills.
